What’s goin on?

Fell into the Middlesex County Chamber of Commerce Breakfast this morning in Cromwell where UConn womens basketball coach Geno Auriemma was the featured speaker. My kids love him and wanted to see him, so….

Anyway, as you might expect, he pumped the other programs at the school and their coaches.

Now we know Geno is a dynamic speaker and he was all of that today but he said new UConn football coach Bob Diaco is one to watch in the department.

“What are you teaching at practice, coach? ‘We’re teaching destruction’,” Auriemma said reciting a quote from Diaco last week to which the packed house erupted. He continued on with more: “We’re looking for players that have violent hands. Really? Violent hands. OK. I like that. I was looking for a wide receiver and a quarterback myself.”
